But someone is misusing the program for personal gain and has now turned the program against all of the operatives with a kill on sight order. She is a total tease and she drives him crazy. But in his eyes there was no look of the defenseless: only a light of passionate contempt. If wishes were ponies I'd have a damn fine stable. Yes , this is a standalone, and it can be read, loved, and understood without reading the prior books, but once you read Defenseless you will be hook. I can't wait to see what Corinne Michaels writes next! Always protecting me, giving me his body as a shield. I look forward to reading it.
The only reason this got 1. You will get to see how the rescue mission happened and how all the dots will align. Their past shapes their lives and drives them in their present ensuring the mission comes first. He is a genius who does top secret government work. But once you understand the entirety of the context that has been established, it does a good job of staying consistent with itself.
All in all thank goodness for her Mark an alpha male, which was the type the male she needed! And heck, that was one hell of a ride! I totally fell in love with Charlie! However, if you are not like me and love romantic suspense full of actions and steamy scenes, this book is a very nice choice. O toque de humor que havia em suas interações trouxe uma leveza e acabou quebrando um pouco da tensão. I'd all but given up on the genre after a slew of shallow, lazy, hohum reads. Emotions running high gave you that heart stopping fear at times as well as making you smile from ear to ear. Ethan, who served with Will, feels a sense of responsibility to make sure Georgia is ok She isn't adapting well to being a body guard to spoiled rich women. Nothing makes sense because everyone seems to be a suspect and nothing is what it seems.
I appreciated that he didn't want a bodyguard period, but did accept that Georgia was better at tactical strategizing and he wasn't afraid to follow her lead in that area. Prepare yourself for unguarded full force of passion, lust, hope, second chances, and revelations. As is typical in all of these types of romances, nothing is what it seems. I liked these two main characters. Georgia was a great leading character, full on snark, exuding self assurance but still with that lingering trace of fragility. Secrets, lies and truths all unfold in this wonderfully layered romance with picture perfect prose that has depth, danger, intensity and suspense at its core driving the story and engaging attention. She is stumbling through this new, post military job, unsure of herself and her purpose in life.
Unfortunately for both of them, their time together is anything but quiet as they'd expected, and they have to survive assassination attempts, go in hiding and figure out who they can trust and who wants Parker dead before it's too late. I loved getting to spend time with all my old friends from the previous books and seeing how their lives have continued to go forward, has left me with a big smile on my face! Since I have read the Belonging and the Consolation duet before, I was excited to get Mark Dixon's story! Plus both main characters were a welcome break from the alpha-holes that infest covert-ops-oriented romances. Their romance was sweet and I liked that part of the story the most. Each book is a standalone and can be read that way, but there will be more books in the Somerton Security Series. I have been looking forward to this story since I really got to see him in Conviction. While this can easily be read as a standalone, it's also interconnected with this author's previous books. Georgia and Parker's relationship intrigued me from the start.
And the sex was off the charts. While waiting for Steven, T. I can't even explain how fantastic their chemistry is. Because the chemistry between these two is distracting. I feel like this one might be her best book thus far. This book has a little bit of everything: intrigue, action, bad guys, suspense, humor, and romance.
And can we talk about the cover? Link to this page: So much of what had happened in that dreadful time as could be kept from the knowledge of Lucie was so well concealed from her, that not until long afterwards, when France and she were far apart, did she know that eleven hundred defenceless prisoners of both sexes and all ages had been killed by the populace; that four days and nights had been darkened by this deed of horror; and that the air around her had been tainted by the slain. It was all quite good. I will tell you all, it is so worth the wait! But Mark is determined to never let her ploys wreck their game. And I fight to the end. It doesn't work as an action story either - think This is undoubtedly the worst book I have read this year. The female has the right amount of strength and vulnerability to make her a real person. Yes , this is a standalone, and it can be read, loved, and understood without reading the prior books, but once you read Defenseless you will be hook.
I liked this book a lot. Charlie has been undercover for two long years, upon her return to the states she finds herself pulled from the operation and with time on her hands. I've given this a B for narration and a B- for content at Audiogals, so 3. So stupid when authors do this. Parker was a great hero as well again, I was a little nervous that he would be a flat character.
It had a fantastic suspenseful storyline and kept me listening all day. A giant pain in the ass woman who drives me bat shit crazy, yet makes me need her at the same time. The chemistry between Parker and Georgia was no good. I thank you, sir, for your chivalrousness in turning a defenseless woman into ridicule. At first, I was afraid I wouldn't like the tone of the book, since I'm kind of particular about my sci-fi-y books, especially romance.
It's an amazing feeling to read an amazing book after not liking the last one you read. I really enjoyed the audio version!! Nothing wrong with that, not the best not the worst. The action is non stop and Parker and Georgia are, quite literally, on the run from early on in the book! I loved it so much! Sometimes I felt like that got cut off and I was missing it. There was little fallout from all the destruction in this book, things happened either too easily or became ridiculously difficult, and too many coincidences tied everything together. O toque de humor que havia em suas interações trouxe uma leveza e acabou quebrando um pouco da tensão. Parker was tough in his own right, but Georgia really ran the show when it came to keeping them safe. As things get more and more serious and complicated and frustrated and dangerous, hearts and emotions get more and more involved.
